Flowering Flourishes Stamp Set & Tool Tip

Welcome to Guneaux Designs Today I am sharing with you a card that features a new stamp set from the 2012 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, the Flowering Flourishes.  I was so disappointed when Stampin' Up! retired the Baroque Motifs stamp set; however, I am quite pleased with the Flowering Flourishes stamp set which is similar.  The stamp set includes three "flourishes", and the one on this card is the largest.  I think it is so cute! 




This picture gives you another view:

  • Follow the information below to create the two corner pieces.
TOOL TIP: 

Remember when we had the Stampin’ Up! Photo Corner Punch to create our corner decorations on our handmade cards?  I loved that punch and I miss it.  Well, I decided to look for another way to make attractive photo corner pieces.  Therefore, I did, and this is how I did it.



1.  Cut a piece of cardstock using the Curly Label Punch.








2.  Place the corner of the long side of the curly label into the corner of the 1-1/4" Square Punch, lining it up evenly and cutting it.




3.  This is the result.  Cut more and add them to the corners of your card. 



God's Blessings!
